Publisher's Summary

The Book of Jubilees, sometimes called 'Little Genesis', is an ancient Jewish book that retells many of the stories in Genesis and Exodus with some additional details. It has been known in the West only since the 1840s, when European travellers acquired manuscripts from monasteries in Ethiopia. Then, in 1949, a complete Hebrew manuscript was found amongst the Dead Sea Scrolls. It is considered canonical by the Ethiopian Orthodox Church and one of the pseudepigrapha by Protestant, Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Churches. It was well known to Early Christians, as evidenced by the writings of Epiphanius, Justin Martyr, Origen and others. 

The Book of Jubilees claims to have been revealed to Moses by angels while he was on Mount Sinai for 40 days and 40 nights. The chronology given in Jubilees is based on multiples of seven; the jubilees are periods of 49 years, into which all of time has been divided.

Robert Henry Charles (1859-1933), the translator of this edition, was a greatly respected Irish theologian and scholar who translated a range of Old Testament apocrypha and pseudepigrapha.  

This audiobook version of The Book of Jubilees is read by Christopher Glyn and completes his project to provide a uniform narration of the King James Bible, the Apocrypha, the books of Enoch, Jasher and Jubilees.

Warning!!! There are chunks of passages missing.

The reading by Christopher Glyn is outstanding I love it but there are some chapters where sections of the reading are just blank. Such as Chapter 5, Chapter 11, Chapter 14, etc. I haven't listened to the whole book yet but when I read along while listening to the audio there is a good deal of information that is just blank during the reading and starts a couple of paragraphs down when the audio kicks back in. This audiobook should be removed and edited before being sold.
